I have 2 VLANS setup on a layer 3 switch. I have dhcp scopes handing out ip addresses for both VLANS by the same layer 3 switch. I can ping anything in VLAN 3 from VLAN 2 as long as it recieved a ip address from DHCP with no problem. My problem is I have 2 servers plugged into the
same switch using VLAN 3 static ip addresses. I can not ping them at all from VLAN 2 but I can ping them from any device inside of VLAN 3. Why is this and how do I correct it?
I agree sounds like the default gateways were not defined on the static servers or you are trying to ping a device that has a software firewall running and blocking your ping request.
Check if you have default gateway configured on the servers?.
